Fun Experience, Small Problem With Booking

I booked a trip to fly from Las Vegas to Grand Canyon 12pm takeoff time with 30 minute landing. We wanted 12noon time so we can stay up late and sleep in. I called the company to confirm pickup location, etc. The lady on the phone kept pushing us to go on a different no-landing flight because the flight I booked apparently was not available. When talking to my group about our options with the lady still on the phone, we contemplated cancelling and find another company. She immediately retracks and says my flight was available for 12pm. A few minutes later she called me again and said that the landing flight was available for 10:30am and the no-landing flight that she kept pushing me to do was available at 12noon. We opted to take the 10:30am flight. What I do not understand is why does this company show 12noon available when it is not and kept pushing us to do a different flight than what we wanted. Other than that, the flight was fun. We flew to the hoover dam, lake mead, and eventually grand canyon. The flight was about 35 minutes long one way. They gave us headsets for communication since the helicopter is loud. The headset was disabled such that the pilot can speak to all passengers, but none of the passengers can talk to each other or the pilot. The flight got boring at times when the pilot was in between his fun facts about the hoover dam, boulder city, lake mead or grand canyon. To the credit of the pilot, he did have some funny jokes. I had a fun helicopter ride experience in Hawaii where we were able to talk with the pilot and ask questions during the flight. Might be a good idea for this flight. We stopped by grand canyon for 20 minutes and got to use the gift shop to buy food and souvenirs. All in all it was a fun and positive experience. The employees and pilot was very informative and nice.
